We all know chocolate’s good for you right? Well, the people at Prestat have come up with a bar that’s especially good for you. Their new CHOXI+ range naturally contains more flavanol antioxidants than any other food.
Before you go stock piling said chocolate, remember that you do need to eat the occasional orange – just to balance things out. If however, you are devouring a bar of this stuff with real verve and someone should question your choice of food stuff, just remind them that two squares of dark CHOXI+ contain all the antioxidants your body needs for a whole day. If they still continue to berate you for reasons best known to themselves, then you can launch some secondary facts at them, explaining that two squares of this chocolate bar contain the same amount of antioxidants as two bowls of blueberries or 1lb of Brussels sprouts. Now, blueberries are lovely, granted, but a little expensive at two bowlfuls. Brussels sprouts on the other hand are just horrible – like mini cabbages that have forgotten how to wash.
The next step of course, is to take an actual step back as the person lecturing you tries to grab some of your chocolate, and see for themselves. At this point, you run in the opposite direction (quite fast, because you will be full of antioxidants), and promptly devour the rest of the bar in a handy little alcove you find along the way. Yes – the whole bar. It might be full of antioxidants, but it’s yet to have an impact on will power, and there’s that funny little voice inside your head telling you that perhaps, if you eat the whole bar in one day, you will live forever…
Prestat’s CHOXI+ range is available from selected Tesco and Waitrose stores, as well as from Prestat’s website: http://www.prestat.co.uk. Priced at £1.99.
